Apple Releases IOS 4.3 Beta To Developers 101 101

m2pc writes "Apple has just released iOS 4.3 beta to developers. New features include: Developer access to AirPlay API, Four and Five-finger gestures, and the return of the hardware orientation lock for iPad, a feature that upset many when Apple suddenly removed this feature with no software option to re-enable it. Also interesting to note is the lack of mention of the Mobile Hotspot feature rumored to be included in 4.3 for all iOS devices by the Verizon announcement yesterday."

Maybe or maybe not, but my guess is that they do. However, even if they did pay the ransom, the hacker will still release it into the wild to the highest bidder. VA only choice is not to pay the ransom and to notify all of their customers that their personal information is compromised.

Go get 'em. Seriously. I came to this same conclusion more or less about 10 years ago. I never studied philosophy beyond a frosh class in college and was never religious. I like to converse with people about religion and it generally boils down to "What's the point?" No one knows, or will ever know. Most religious beliefs and arguments are about what's right and what's wrong. Fine, let's debate that without all of the supernatural mumbo-jumbo in the way. (BTW, if you want to have a good debate, never offer as proof "Because the Bible says so.")

As far as the article, once again, what's the point? If he wants to molest children, he should be locked away, no matter what the cause. The judges can determine if it's prison or a hospital. I'm glad that he was treated and was able to be released. I have sympathy for his plight and everyone else in this thread who had experience with brain tumors. But I still don't want them around me or my family if they're violent.

BTW, have any references that I can peruse along these lines? I'm always interested in exploring this line of thought more.
